The White Sox have lost three straight following Saturday’s 13-4 loss to the Rangers. Chicago now has a 28-54 record overall and a 12-27 road record. The Sox are putting up 3.85 runs per game this season while allowing 5.24 runs per contest.

Reynaldo Lopez is taking the mound for the White Sox this afternoon. He has started 16 games this season and has a 3-5 record with a 3.73 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP. Lopez has pitched a total of 94.0 innings and has 67 strikeouts with 39 walks.

The Rangers are on a three-game win streak right now and they have won the two games in this weekend series by a combined score of 24-7. Texas is now 38-46 overall and 19-25 at home. The Rangers are scoring 4.56 runs per game this season while allowing 5.05 per contest.

Cole Hamels gets the start for the Rangers this afternoon. Hamels is 4-6 on the season through 16 starts with a 3.61 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. He has pitched a total of 97.1 innings on the year and has 97 strikeouts with 37 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The White Sox are just 2-9 in their last 11 games following a loss and 1-5 in Lopez’ las six road starts.

Texas

The Rangers have won 11 of their last 13 games overall and six of their last seven at home. They also have won seven of their last eight against AL Central opponents.

Prediction:

The Rangers have dominated this series, mashing the ball at the plate while holding back the Chicago hitters. Hamels should be in line for a good start today and I think Texas will continue to hit the ball well against Lopez. Texas is one of the hotter teams in MLB right now and I look for their strong play to continue today.

 

The Pick: Texas Rangers -170
